CIHUACOATL (pronounced see-wah-co-AH-tl) is the Aztec Goddess of earth and fertility. She is the patron of midwives and took charge of the souls of women who died in childbirth. These souls were called "cihuateteo" after the Goddess, and they were said to haunt crossroads where they waited to steal children. Cihuacoatl helped Quetzalcoatl in creating humanity by mixing the ground bones of earlier peoples with the blood of the old Gods. Her name means "snake woman" and is also seen as CIHUHCOATL or CIUCOATL.

Goddess Flower Woman

Goddess Flower Woman Image
FLOWER WOMAN is the Yaqui Goddess of prophecy. A Yaqui myth tells of the time just before the Spaniards came to North America. A tribe called the Surem lived in the Sonoran desert. One day, a tree began to shake and make strange noises, but no one could understand what it said. A young woman came forward and told the people that the tree was telling them that the world was about to change, that a new people would come and bring new beliefs and new ways. Some of the people did not like Flower Woman's message, and chose to leave the tribe and live underground. The rest of the people stayed and became the Yaqui, who merged the newcomers' ways with their own.

Goddess Diwali Image
The festival of Diwali has strong astrological energies because it marks the end of the Hindu Lunar Year and the beginning of a new one; the exact day of the beginning of the festival is decided by the position of the Moon. According to the Hindu calendar 'no moon day' (new moon) is considered the perfect day to celebrate Diwali. It is also a harvest festival which this year will fall on October 17th. Diwali is one of the biggest festivals of the Hindus and is celebrated with great enthusiasm and happiness throughout the Hindu world, and lthe festivities last for five days.

During this time, women decorate their homes with rice paintings and sand mandalas; the men light clay lamps in the hopes of showing their ancestors the pathway to heaven. The children shoot off fireworks in the streets. Dawali is the celebration of the victory of good over evil. It is a special time, a perfect time for family gatherings, foods, and celebrations when everyone greets their familiy members and friends, forgetting and forgiving the wrongdoings which have been done during the year. Individuals take an oil bath, prepare sweet meats, and pray to Kali to destroy their ignorance as well as to grant their wishes. The night sky is lit with fireworks to chase away the evil spirits.

This Kali festival is also Mother's Day in India, a time when Indian women are presented with gifts of new clothing and jewelry and are also treated with a great reverence. Temples dedicated to Kali are freshly painted and glow with glittering lights at night, and offerings of cooked rice and curd are brought in pots for Kali. A "puja" (worship of a consecrated idol) ritual is performed in the evening when the clay lamps are lit A "puja "is believed to harness cosmic energy or spiritual goals. This rutual involves the use of all the five senses: sight, smell, touch, sound, and taste. It can be quite an exciting experience with its colorful flowers and fruits, incense sticks and other fragrances, the sounds of conch shells, sacred hymns and songs.

"If one offers me a simple leaf, fruit, or flower with love and devotion, I will accept it."--Bhagvad Gita"
